One World Week – Intercultural communication; beyond stereotypes

RUW is hosting an intercultural communication workshop during the One World Week festivities at WUR (6th of April)

In this workshop, given by guest lecturer Marcel van der Poel, we look at culture, cultural differences and intercultural communication beyond the clichés and the stereotypes. Through a range of exercises and interactive assignments you will actively explore the impact of intercultural sensitivity when dealing with dissimilar others. In debriefs we share the underlying concepts and models – but always in a very concise manner, leaving ample room for asking questions about the practical use of our culture-general learning.

The workshop will be facilitated in Room C104 of the Forum Building,

12:30-14:00, 06/04

Subscription is not necessary.

Keep calm, because I’m running for Treasurer
